  1. Locked out of new computer


    Microsoft has locked me out of security for 30 days and now says PIN is no longer available due to changes in security settings, then once logging in with email it tells me again I am locked out for 30 days with no option to access my new computer.

    For some reason it has reverted back to an old phone number to send code and not the other recovery email.


    Thanks in advance Ann

    :)

    Hi Oshith,

    This issue might occur if there is change in lock screen settings.

    To assist you better, please provided us the information below:

    • When you say that "It is not flapped over to password when clicking", you tried to check the issue by clicking through external mouse?
    • Have you made any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    I suggest you to follow the steps below to change the picture of the lock screen and also try to update Display Adapter driver.

    Step 1: I suggest you to follow the steps below to set the lock screen pictures.

    1. Right click on Desktop screen.

    2. Then click on Personalize.

    3. Click on Lock Screen.

    4. Try to select the lock screen picture.

    Step 2: I recommend you to update the latest driver for display adapter in Device Manager.

    1. Press Windows Key + R Key.

    2. Then type “devmgmt.msc” without the quotes and hit on
    Enter Key.

    3. Expand Display Adapter.
